    Overhauling FIAT's own engine aint a very good idea. Firstly, you'll find the parts hard to find. Secondly they would be hell expensive.


    I will suggest, you go for N-1 engine- Its a 1500 CC engine and weighs a lot less than FIAT's own engine. The engine along with suspension and gear will cost you around 60,000 Rs.


    Between, for how much are you buying this FIAT? I've seen people selling FIAT for 100,000 only -

    @Imransul


    No support & services are available by Raja Motor Co for Fiat Uno.


    Overhaulin of Stock engine wud cost u~ 45K. If u want engine swap then i will recomend u to go for some petrol engines BTW performance after swap is subject to experties of mechanic. In most of the cases people are not satisfied with swap.


    If u wana keep it stock then u should be capable to do some hands on stuff & have a good & honest mechanic then u can enjoy that car other wise it wud be big mess for u.

    A Fiat worth 230K doesnt make sense at all, considering the fact that engine needs overhaul -


    Dont forget that Annual token of FIAT is 7,500/-

    We sold one last year for 77,000 Rs only. Was a 2001 model in silver colour.Lahore registered with original book. And tokens were short for 4 years.
    Fiat diesal engine is useless as need alot of care as compare to Toyota or Nissan Diesal engines.
    Better to stay away from Fiat as much as possible.

    I am also lokking to buy a Fiat for around 100000. My plan is to swap the disel engine with 1.3 DOHC (Patrol engine.) Can anyone tell me how much price I will have to pay for engine swaping? and what about annual token as after swaping engine will be only 1300cc and not 1800cc. Please comment on this one.
